  1. Roti pratas as they call it in Singapore. My son loves it. here, in Auckland, we have a little India, but rotis cost twice as in Sinagpore.

  17. Watching someone who's really good at stuff like this is always amazing to me. I suppose when you make several hundred rotis a day every day, you do it from muscle memory. Cool stuff!

    And yeah, now I'm hungry too!

  28. I agree with Hildred--kneading is the best part of making bread. A great way to get rid of frustrations! But I would think this vendor would have very sore hands by the end of the day:)
